The DDTP send all translations to the PTS. The package descriptions and
the debconf translations. Both use the same PTS email address. Maybe we
should split this to ddtp-pdesc and ddtp-debconf? Raphael? 

If you subscript the ddtp PTS mails, you will get the translations

some place..

Today I will collect all mail of this thread and mail a summary like
mail to debian devel with a TODO list for the DDTP.

If you or others have additional task for a better intergration of the
DDTP with the package maintainers, or new comments mail in reply to this
summary mail.
